Love being a Grandpa

Hey, I don’t feel like a grandpa, but I have to admit, that I am starting to look like one.  The ever growing amount of gray in my beard is proof of that.  My step daughter, Megan, became a mom two months ago, giving birth to Hazel Virginia, making my wife, Roxanne,  and me Grandparents!!  And, everyday, I love being a Grandpa more and more.  I know many others feel this way, too, but there is no better feeling than seeing your child bringing a new little life into the world.  Of course, other people that know me realize that the Stanley Cup playoffs are on…and my New York Rangers are doing well…but there is a ways to go.  So what is a grandpa supposed to do…put the grand kid in a Rangers Tee Shirt!!  Now..if Hazel’s first words could be “Let’s Go Rangers”……
